B2M Entertainment (Hangul: B2M엔터테인먼트) is a South Korean management agency and music label founded in 2010 by Gil Jong-hwa based in Seoul, South Korea. B2M recording artists include soloists Lee Hyori, SS501's Heo Young-saeng and Kim Kyu-jong, girl group Spica and Eric Nam.

History[edit]

B2M Entertainment was founded in 2010 by Gil Jong-hwa, who formerly worked for DSP Media, handling the management of several artists including Fin.K.L, SS501 and Kara.

Kpop queen Lee Hyori left Mnet Media in early 2010 and joined B2M Entertainment to work with Gil Jong-hwa who had been Fin.K.L's co-manager and had worked with the group since its debut. Heo Young-saeng and Kim Kyu-jong from the successful boy group SS501 left DSP Media upon expiration of their contract and joined B2M Entertainment in the same year.

Spica was formed by B2M Entertainment in January of 2012, consisting of 5 members: Kim Boa (leader, main vocal), Kim Bohyung (lead vocal), Park Ju-hyun (rapper, sub vocal), Park Narae (vocal, visual), and Yang Jiwon (vocal, visual). On January 31, 2012, B2M Entertainment officially announced that the group would have their formal debut with a mini-album, titled Russian Roulette. A music video teaser for "Russian Roulette" was released the following day. The full-length music video was released on February 7, 2012.

Eric Nam joined B2M Entertainment in September of 2012 after finishing in the Top 5 on Korean TV show 'Star Audition: Birth of a Great Star - Season 2'. B2M Entertainment has said before about their young rookie artist, “We plan to fully support Eric Nam’s growth as a musician as he goes on to challenge himself in various fields of music.”[2] On January 23, 2013 the official music video of "Heaven's Door" was released alongside his mini-album entitled Cloud 9, marking his official debut.
